Slideluck, a non-profit organization dedicated to building and strengthening community through food and art, has had a presence in cities throughout the world, but it’s making its first stop in the Berkshires next week, and you’re invited. The event is being hosted by The Barn Galleryat Stonover Farm Bed and Breakfast in Lenox on Thursday, July 16, with the potluck starting at 6:30 p.m. and the slideshow at 8:30 p.m.

Part slideshow, part potluck, Slideluck was the brainchild of photographer Casey Kelbaugh, who hosted the first event in his Seattle backyard in 2000.
